Release Date: 07/26/2017
Court Coursey and I spoke during the week of the Milken Conference in Los Angeles, an event that brings around some the biggest name in corporate giving from around the world. Amazingly $20 Trillion dollars in wealth represented at the conference. Almost 1/4 of the world's wealth was at the conference. Court calls these types of conferences "aggregators" where you can book 6 months of meetings into one week. He held 54 meetings in a 4 day period.
